A nonprofit healthcare center in Midtown Miami is closed Monday after officials say they learned someone who visited the center tested positive for COVID-19.

The Care Resource Community Health Center is in the Biscayne Medical Plaza, 3801 Biscayne Blvd., and is a few blocks away from the Miami Design District. Care Resource says the person visited the center last week. The agency serves more than 27,000 people in the community, according to NBC 6.

The nonprofit provides “comprehensive health and support services” to children, teens and adults in South Florida, including dental care, gynecological care, immunizations and HIV primary care, according to its website.

If you call the center, a message about the novel coronavirus will start to play:

“If you or anyone around you has traveled internationally or on a cruise within the last month and have experienced any of the following symptoms in the last 14 days such as cough, running nose, headache, fever or sore throat please remain at home.”

Its still unclear if the patient was a worker or a patient.
